The crypt is the only piece remaining of the church of St. Barbara that once stood above it. It was built mainly with the money donated by miners, who wanted their patron saint, after whom the temple was named, to be watching over their safety in the pit and above ground.

The crypt is the only piece remaining of the church of St. Barbara that once stood above it. It was built mainly with the money donated by miners, who wanted their patron saint, after whom the temple was named, to be watching over their safety in the pit and above ground.

During the allies' bombings the church was severely damaged and then pulled down completely in 1951. The crypt was reopened to the public in 2007 after total reconstruction of the square according to the plans of the architect Boris Podrecca. On June 22nd, the name day of sv. Ahacij (St. Achatius), there is a church service in the crypt. In front of the crypt there is a gallery. Both the gallery and the crypt are located under the Mestni trg Square in Idrija.
